11:31 pm
room, in this cunt requirement i know the american people have got to be excited as well. yeah . we had to pump it up for kevin brady, nothing is as exciting about hearing from the head of the weighs and means head. the idea of keeping more of your paycheck, promising. paul ryan says that's what the average family will be able to do. with this plan, the typical family of four will save 1,182 a year on their taxes. for many families having an additional 1,182 more will make a real difference. that 1,182-dollars covers a year's worth of gas are to your car, the phone bill, depending on you how much data your kids use.
11:32 pm
1,182-dollars can help you you pay down your debt faster. start and renovate your home faster t. you can build a pool faster, like chris walled did in christmas vacation. over what to name the bill. paul ryan asked for the president's help for a name, the president wanted to call it the cut cut cut act. members of congress weren't thrilled with the name, tax cuts and jobs act. the bill was just release today. they're trying to pass it through the house. the plan in their terms, it's going to benefit the wealthy and not the middle class. they're criticizing how quickly the gop is trying to pass this thing through. democrats want real bipartisan \tax\tacks reform. we tan ready to join the republicans at the table to reduce growth, create good pay ing jobs that reduce the deficit that help keep america number one. instead the ryan
11:33 pm
mcconnell framework is not re form, it is again deficit ex exploding, multitrillion dollars giveaway to the wealthest corporations delivered on the backs of our children, our seniors and hard working americans. when the gop was writing the tax bill they must have had basketball on their mind because steve curie got a shout out. eighty-two pages read like thisment our legislation will ensure the much needed tax releve go to the local job creators by distinguishing between the steve and curry and the business income of steve's bike shop. what curry responded on twitter, i wonder if steve's bike shop is hiring. the release of the tax bill today is a start but there's going to be a lot of lobbying, negotiating and change s made. the president wants a bill pathed and on his desk to sign as we said by the end of the yearment they're off to the races, but keep in mind, the buddy ball is open. you
11:34 pm
house and the senate and get the signature. good you can there ment the president also had a couple other announcements of the economy, picking a new chair of the federal reserve. he will replace janet yellen when her term ends in february and even though the president decided not to nominate yellen for a second term he did have some high praise for her. i also want to thank the current chair, fed chair, janet, yellen a wonderful woman who's done a terrific job we have been working together for ten months and she is absolutely a spectacular person janet, thank you very much. >> let's talk about yellen's replacement, jerome powell. he is a moderate member of the feds board. he's going to need confirmation from the senate. it doesn't seem like it's going to be a controversial pick. if confirmed he'll become chair on february 3. republicans like the idea, democrats were upset that yellen was not given a second term. she's the
11:35 pm
a second tirm. the other announcement was a 100 billion-dollar company that's based in cig pore is re locating its home eye dwres to the us. it is called broad come limited and it makes communications chips. it will make a move to delaware bringing 20 billion-dollar it with. the president hinted about this yesterday. he said a major company will be moving back to the us and that people would be surprised. now we know what he was talking about and the president says this is just the beginning of his campaign to bring jobs back to the us. we're telling people made in the usa. it's a bill deal now. we're bringing it back. when i was growing up. when i was a young boy you'd say made in the usa. it meant something. well, it means something again. my administration is working every day to make the united states the most attractive place in the world to do business. so that more and more companies like broad come come come back to our shores, grow their businesses and create more and more american jobs and you see it
11:36 pm
>> broad come says the gop's tax plan is the reason it's going to move back. it says it will make it easier to do business but the company's move has to be approved by shareholders. it has been almost a year since the 2016 election. but democrats are fighting about what happened . we're not talking about hillary clinton's book. donna brazil shared an excerpt of her upcoming book poa lit could he and the book was entitled inside hillary clinton, secret take over of the dnc. under her predecessor, wassermann-schultz quit during the convention last year. that's when donna brazil came in . she says they were rigging the convention to throw the primary to hillary clinton. in investing in the commit he debt clinton would essentially control the party's finances and strategy. the clinton campaign isn't talking about brazil's claims and neither is
11:37 pm
bernie sandersment she used her role as commemorator to steer the questions to hillary clinton . slow fundraising has been a serious problem for the. dnc will hope energize its fundraising. let's talk about the russia investigation. the president's son-in-law has turned over documents to the special counsel's team. investigators have already start ed to scattered about kushner's role in the firing of james comey, but kushner is also reportedly not the target of the investigation. he voluntarily turned over documents from the campaign and the transition. so far there has been one guilty plea in the special's council investigation and that being former campaign director george pap lose. the guilty plea may have dashed his political aspersions you because days before his arrest
11:38 pm
wrote on linkedin congressional run thoughts. no pap done lose 2018. that ill with be highly unlikely at this pointment the white house has distanced themselves from george pap lop us, you but onthe less that is the only guilty plea in the russian investigation. the president is taking off for a ten-day trip to ace yeah. that means there is no press briefings. >> i know you you guys are probably going to be pretty sad since we're not going toette get days like this since we'll be traveling. for those of you on the trip, look forward to see you. for those of you who aren't we will certainly miss all of you. the boos weren't part of the white house press briefing. if somebody heard that . she may not miss the questions that much because she told the podium over t
11:39 pm
mcmaster. this trip will be the president's longest foreign visit yet and obviously the nuclear threat from north korea and how to handle it. think back to august, that's when the president threpped north korea with fire and furry. they asked if we should expect similar language when the president is on his trip. >> the president will use whatever language he wants to. i don't think he regulates his language. have you you noticed that? let's talk about this quickly. i've been aware of the discussions about his in flam trivment what's inflammatory is the north korean regem and what they're doing to threatennen the world. i think there would be a grave danger if that regime didn't understand our resolve, the president's resolve to counter north korean aggression the other main issue the president will be focusing on
11:40 pm
could be a challenge considering one of the first thing he did as president is pull out of the tpp p. the trade deal included several of the the countries he'll be visiting. the prime minister said he hoped the us will rejoin the pack. >> up next on the final five we want to dig deeper between the freud with the democrats. very quiet in the news room. anyone around in the news room. oh, look, tom fitzgerald is here. do you want to talk about the dn c. sure. >> tom fitzgerald, joining me after the break on the final five. five.
11:41 pm
m mark herring, candidate for attorney general, and i sponsored this ad. female narrator: what would john adams do to women's health? adams argued before the supreme court to give employers control over your access to birth control. adams also supports giving employers the power to block access to affordable contraception for 1.6 million virginia women. and adams opposes abortion even in cases of rape, or incest. john adams: wrong for women's health. wrong for virginia. narrator: ed gillespie's false attacks. independent press says they're false. fear mongering. absurd. ralph northam went to vmi
11:42 pm
army doctor for eight years. in richmond, dr. northam helped pass longer sentences for gang members and mandatory life sentences for violent sexual predators. ralph northam: i'm ralph northam, candidate for governor, and i sponsored this ad because i'm a pediatrician, and for ed gillespie to say i would tolerate anyone hurting a child is despicable. >> here we come. democrats want you to think that 2018 is going to be an easy ride that revelations traced back to last year's prede
11:43 pm
former dnc chair has a new book come out that gives kred ands to the idea that hillary clinton's campaign was calling the spots on the nomination. tom fitzgerald. did you ever get a round of applause on live tv like you did like that? >> i'd rather have that than what sarah huckabee sanders got on her appearance. i i'll take what i can get. >> we were going back and forth by e-mail. you were at the conventions, especially the dnc, what's your take away from what you saw then to what you're see ing now? mpletion i got to spend a lot of quality time and i mean that with a small q with debbie wassermann schultz who was on her way out as dnc chairman last year becauses that tha was when the e-mail story broke that basically suggested of a lot of what we're hearing today in that the story that donna brazil is coming out with the book that is
11:44 pm
bear the family freud is that going on within the democratic party. in a nutshell it's this brazil takes over the dnc last year and promises bernie sanders that she's going to find out what the reality of the qulint on campaign steering the primar ies towards hillary clinton at the time she didn't quite know whether these e-mails were accurate. you how many were maybe even fictitious, written. she goes through the story that's now exerted in politico and she has to make a very difficult call to bernie sanders and the difficult call is that basically the clinton campaign four months a after her announcing that she was going to run for president had pretty much taken over the dnc nomination half because debbie wassermann schultz had a very lose hand on the steering wheel in steering this party and half because the party was such in a financial free fall from debt that they had to turn to the clintons to get out of that hole . i talked to a source, a democratic source tonight who told me really one of the biggest problems they'
11:45 pm
into during the obama years. president obama didn't really do much at the state or local devil so they didn't have the money to be competitive. he says that's one of the reasons why they're so far blow when it comes to governorships and statehouses. everything always talked about barack oh bm a was what a power ful fundraiser he was. here's them talking about him necessity neglecting the dnc. the fact is this, jim, we're about a week out now, less than a week out from the electionment a year from that day are the mid -term elections. this party in a lot of ways is stuck in the mud of where it was a year ago on its internal fights and tom pars as taken the rains as the d nc chair. they financed their fundraiser at this point. they need to get it together and they need to get it together q
11:46 pm
this dream that they have of taking back the house or, you know, turning the republicans on their heels is not going to materialize because, you know, from a structural standpoint this is a party that not only is not getting a long very well at an organizational level they still have some very serious money problems and that cannot help. look, hillary clinton put her book out and she's pointing the blame here there and every where. donna brazil is putting her book out and saying this happened because of this. it is spaced out just perfectly enough to create this whole storm. donna brazil is knots a clinton eight. there's a history there she was integral running the gear campaign in 2000. everybody knows the story how the gear campaign and the bill clinton white house were not on the same page. a lot of that had to do withal gear wanting to distance himself from the monica lieu within ski scandal. donna brazil on the dnc
11:47 pm
front lines of the battles. she tried to shutdown barack obama's challenge to her by making the preempt event voice in choicing the 2008 nominee. donna brazil stood at the wall and said i will leave this party. if this doesn't get solved they're going to have an even tougher time getting the bony bros back in the full. that's what they were saying all along last summer. by the way, you have this guy who spends his days and nights at 1600 pennsylvania avenue, he's proven right by this in some of these tweets. you're absolutely right when he said rigged system, rigged system and here it is a rigged system. so chew on that for a while. tom fitzgerald, it's good to see you . thanks for staying up late . we're back after this on the final five.

11:57 pm
remember he said the system t is rigged on the campaign trail. maybe it's not exactly what he was referring to, but the news of hillary clinton's take over of the dnc is playing into that happened. not many expected to disenfranchise. to t seal the nomination, but the president was apparently onto something even if he had no idea at the time what was going on. so pupt we'll call him sound asleep. the dnc tossing and turning much for people didn't buy into the idea that hillary clinton. bernie sanders gave her a run for her money but he never caught up. donna brazil's book conveniently comes out next week , but it does something far more profound for our political process, for people out there who feel disenfranchised with the two-party, finally there's proof. that's the final five on this thursday night. we're back again regular
